ost business travellers travel by themselves on tight itineraries for most of the year – and February provides one of the few chances to book a leisurely break with their partners. This year’s Valentine’s deals look enticing although the mid-week timing means you may need to extend the weekend before, or tag on a few days the following weekend. Either way, there are no shortage of opportunities available throughout the GCC and abroad. We like the look of this purple Corner Suite at Le Gray Beirut ($495 plus 10 per cent VAT) and the hotel is offering free upgrades to this category as well as premium rooms and executive suites. Perks include chocolate-dipped strawberries and two glasses of champers. The Love at Le Gray package runs from February 10-14.
